I have a Maytag Bravos XL washer MVWB880BW0 that had a power

This answer was rated:

I have a Maytag Bravos XL washer MVWB880BW0 that had a power surge and now when you plug it in the washer just pours water and kicks the drain pump on but just keeps pouring water and you can't make it stop. A technician looked at it and said it needs a control board. Does that mean the control panel or the main board?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: About a year old Bravos XL the tag says Type 580-05
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I just want to make sure I'm replacing the right part. They are both pricey

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Unfortunately the only thing that can cause your issue is the main control board as the technician suspected. The part number you'd need to order for your model is W10522399 and unfortunately it's about $220.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?

I have cancelled my subscription because as I said earlier I had two separate questions not one. One about a washer and one about a dryer. I have only gotten answers about the washer and my question about the dryer was flagged as a duplicate. So thanks but I already have the information I need.

You never rated me for the information I gave you on this washer however...
